UUFES Book Group:
A weekly Book Group of from three to eight women and men meets every Monday at 10:00 a.m. at the Meetinghouse for about one and a half to two hours. Recent books, suggested by group members, have included nonfiction (“Hillbilly Elegy” and “Becoming Nicole”); fiction and historic novels (“The Raven Boys,” “The Miniaturist,” “The Finest Hours”) along with memoirs and biographies. With one Monday each month to discuss the selected book, the other weeks are focused on current events and societal issues, such as anti-racism, white privilege, world religions, aging, memoir writing. The Book Group is open to all! Contact person is Barbara Lubin (firstname.lastname@example.org)
